    "Blade Runner" Charged with murder

    Post by Blacksmith on Fri Feb 15, 2013 1:01 am

    Many Olympians become celebrities after a wining performance, few become genuine inspirations for just showing up. Let alone doing well. Olympian Oscar Pistorius did just that. I remember watching an interview with a child amputee about what watching him compete at such a high level meant to her.

    So very sad to see this:

    Sad indeed, especially when you see someone overcome so many challenges.

    I lost a lot of respect for him when he whinged about how Brazilian Alan Oliveira was wearing blades that were too long in the 2012 Paralympics. Oliveria was not.

    Being South African, this is obviously very close to home.

    It is bitterly dissapointing for us, to have an international "icon" be under the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

    We are trying not to speculate as to what happened and hope the authorities, and Oscar himself, will reveal the truth in due time.

    Our thoughts are with the family of the victim as well as with Oscar's own family. Also with him, who has to live and deal with this forever. Human beings are just that. Human.

    To the victim, RIP

    Tragic story. I fear he will be convicted. He hasn't got a leg to stand on.
